Premier Grand Cru Classé in 1855

Exclusive wine experiences at Château Clos Haut Peyraguey in Bordeaux, France

The vineyard of Clos Haut-Peyraguey, nestled at the highest point of the plateau of Bommes in the Sauternes region, is at the heart of the Premiers Crus Classés of 1855. It sits opposite to Château d'Yquem, and one of its immediate neighbors is Château Guiraud.


Château Clos Haut Peyraguey

Le Clos, whose name Peyraguey means promontory, is a jewel of vines lulled by the sun and fed by the mists of Ciron river which allow growing velvet beans that give a unique and prestigious golden wine: Sauternes of Clos Haut Peyraguey. The vineyard of Clos Haut-Peyraguey, nestled at the highest point of the plateau of Bommes in Sauternes is at the heart of the Premiers Grands Crus in 1855. It sits opposite Chateau d'Yquem, and its immediate neighbors are Rayne- Vigneau, Sigalas-Rabaud, Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Castle, Guiraud and La Tour Blanche!

This ancient barony has survived for centuries since its first harvest in 1618: its unique terroir and climatic conditions combined with an ancestral know-how, enable its grapes to play a symphony of excellence in its prestigious golden wine.

In 2012, Bernard Magrez acquired Clos Haut-Peyraguey from the Pauly family, who had run the property since 1914. In order to perpetuate the excellence of the Premier Grand Cru Classé of Sauternes and to give it international preeminence, Bernard Magrez ensures tradition and meticulous care in the vineyards, as well as innovation to produce a unique wine: Clos Haut-Peyraguey.
